Fighting Perfectionism and How to Be a Good Enough Parent with Dr. Amy Stoeber

There's a lot of pressure right now for parents to "do everything," even amidst COVID, but we actually can't do everything without suffering greatly.

On this episode we welcome Dr. Amy Stoeber to talking about embracing "good enough" parenting and about how to turn away from the concept of perfectionism.

Dr. Stoeber is a licensed psychologist who sees children and families in private practice but she also is a trainer, consultant, and educator for teachers and medical practices on the topics of trauma and resilience. She provides workshops, educational conferences, and online events to train professionals on trauma, compassionate practices, and building resilience so that families and children thrive!
